Tickets are still available to see the group that rose to fame with hits like “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)” and “Baby I Need Your Loving.”
The Four Tops Christmas show will be on the stage of Richmond Community College’s Cole Auditorium tonight at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $40 each and are in limited quantity. Seating is on a reserved-seating basis. Tickets will likely be available at the door, but the Box Office encourages calling ahead.
Although the group’s last single was released in 1988, reviewers still proclaim that they are a hit in concert, according to Cole Auditorium Director Joey Bennett.
Originally called The Four Aims, the group charted nearly 30 songs over the course of eight years and had hit songs in three consecutive decades. The group performed for more than four decades without a single change in the members. With strong influences from the wide-range of musical genres that they performed while trying to make it big, their version of Motown Sound has strong ties to pop, Broadway, jazz and blues.
The group’s classics included “Ain’t No Woman (Like The One I’ve Got),” “Keeper Of The Castle” and “Reach Out I’ll Be There.”
